why do metal cant biodegrade



  1. 0 Votes

    Metals are not biodegradable mainly because they are not an organic material, which means they aren’t a typical food for any organism.  Biodegradation is a process by which an organic material is eaten up and processed by microorganisms, and thereby broken down and reincorporated into the cycle of living organisms.  Since metal didn’t really have a place in the cycle of living organisms to begin with, there’s really no place for its being reincorporated.
